whyoat was going through my mind was, put your arms over your head because this political movement has gotten to the oint where you may get beat to death inside of a rally. i almost got my [ bleep ] ki cked. i just got beat in the middle of a political rally in america, right. >> reporter: this is trump's campaign manager, looking more like a bouncer at the rally, grabbing the collar of one protester. another man pulling the young n back. the front-runner meanwhile hoping his tough talk on immigration resonates. >> you know, this country has a big, big problem with illegal immigration. >> reporter: a key issue in arizona where sheriff joe arpaio and governor jan brewer rallied with him. last ditch efforts to stop trump growing desperate. millions in ad money against him in utah and beyond. and reports of a 100 day stop trump campaign led by the ever unpopular establishment, whose captain mitt romney is now
>> republicans are coming together behind this campaign. >> reporter: in utah, cruz now showing a sizable lead over trump, while despite his difficult road ahead, john kasich telling chuck todd he won't be anyone's vice president. >> under no circumstances. are you kidding me? >> reporter: and the twellmp supporter who beat up was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of assault. donald trump is leading by double digits in some polls. the opposition to his candidacy, especially the grassroots opposition is growing louder, lder and more organized than ever before. >> jacob rascon, hankamou. chuck todd is nbc's political director, moderator of "meet the press." good morning to you. spent the last three weeks in rious parts of ohio, went to a trump rally in youngstown on wedn day, struck by the depth and the intensity of the support for donald trump. no violence there. but at the beginning of the
announcements, to not douch i otester. they seem to go out of their way. why does this keep happening at his rallies? >> i think you can't hmeelp but it has ignited his candidacy, ignited something. you see it. look, his own words ignites something. yes, they are now including warnings at the top of these rallies, but, you know, this is not the way the candidate speaks when he's at these rallies. i think that you can't help but say, it is on him. he is helping to stoke the fire here that in his audience and then, look, that -- in turn that invites other protesters who want to respond in the same violent way. i think it is -- i think we see an escalation that is taking place here that at the end of the day, the candidate himself is probably the best person to de-escalate. >> looking ahead to the next contest on tuesday, trump is doing well in arizona, ted cruz
but according to the new york tiermes, it is the wisconsin pr ary on april 5th, gop leaders are focusing on. that's when theydae going to do this 100 day plan to stop trump.imcan you talk about this? what is the theory here and how ll this really work? >> well, that's the -- you it the question. i d don't know how it is going to work. they have not fiiured out -- there have been plenty of people who are desiring ay,traegy to stop trump. but there is no single strategy that anybody wants to unify around. and there is a reason for it. it is the antipathy that washington has toward ted cruz. ted cruz is the logical anti-trump vehicle. he's the guy that is most likely to be able to stop trump. he's sitting in second place. but because so many of theibige money people, so many u.s. nators and republicans think ump is -- thinks cruz is as unelectable as trump, so they're not ready to do it. i think that's why this anti-trump campaign can't get off the ground.
supreme court nominee merrick garland, we saw mark kirk thgeere, the republican, who has quite the re-election battle ahead of him. the first republican to come out and say, we should give this guy a hearing. is this the beginning of something? or is this nomination still very much dead in the water? >> i you know, i think i want to know what happens to chuck grassley. i think at the end of the day, it is in his hands. he's ts republican senasoo from iowa. he's the guy in charge of the jucadiciary committee. he can schedule the confirmation hearing if he chooses to. he also happens to be up for re-electiofo if his poll numbers start going south, and he suddenly feels vulnerable in io towa, then, craig, i promise you merrick gets a hearing. if he feels politically safe hoeending fiam on the no confirmation hs ring front, garland will noc get a hearing. >> chuck todd, thank you, sir. we'll see more on "meet the press," where john kasich, the two-term governor of ohio, will be among chuck's guests. president ob a will arrsoe so in cuba later this afternoon, a
